For the first time in Saudi Arabia’s history, the Saudi Flag Day will be celebrated on March 11th. By royal order on March 1, King Salman, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, declared March 11 as a special day to celebrate the national flag.

The national flag of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has represented strength, sovereignty, and national unity since the establishment of the Saudi state in 1727. For nearly three centuries, the flag has served as a symbol, shield, banner, and testament to the Saudi state’s unity.

The history of the Saudi Arabian flag is credited to the Imams of the first Saudi kingdom, who established the state and united its lands. “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is His Messenger,” read a green banner hung from a wooden pole.
– The flag remained true to these specifications throughout the first and second Saudi states. Two crossed swords were added to the flag during a critical period of King Abdulaziz’s reign, when he led the drive for the country’s unification, security, and welfare.

Later, the sword was reduced from two to one sword. The Islamic tenet “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is His Messenger” was then written above the sword. The design of the flag eventually included the words “monotheism” and a drawn sword below.
– The flag’s shape, coordination, and elements were all passed down orally before the Shoura Council made a suggestion to King Abdulaziz, who approved the final design on March 11, 1937 AD ( Dhul-Hijjah 27, 1355 AH). The Saudi Flag Bylaw goes into effect in 1393 AH (1973 AD).

The Saudi flag must be rectangular, have a width equal to two-thirds of its length, and be green from pole to edge, according to the bylaw.

The words “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah” are written in the center. A drawn sword with its grip pointed at the base of the flag is displayed beneath the words of monotheism printed in Thuluth script. Because they are both white, the sword and the creed are easily visible from both sides. The sword is three-quarters the length of the monotheistic testimony and is evenly spaced from both sides from the flag’s base, which is in the center of the word’s width.

Each of the slogans and colors has a special significance. The colors white and green represent purity and peace, while the sword represents security and justice. This sword symbolism has Arab origins and represents Arab strength and royalty. The concept of monotheism serves as evidence for Allah’s Oneness and the proper application of His Shariah (Islamic law), which the Kingdom established and has adhered to throughout its three stages of development. The Saudi flag stands out from other flags because it has distinct characteristics that convey awe, respect, and glorification. The flag is not allowed to be flown over the bodies of kings or others, and it is not flown at half-mast during mourning.

The belief in Saudi Flag Day stems from the government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, and the Crown Prince, who believe that the flag is extremely important as a manifestation of the Saudi state, its strength, sovereignty, and cohesion.
